Font Friday is a series of posts showcasing new or interesting fonts that have caught my eye this week. This week it’s “Papercute”, a hand-drawn font inspired by paper cutting, with plenty of hipster appeal

Papercute is far removed from last week’s Trend Slab. Where that font was clean and precise, the hand-styled Papercute is irregular and slightly wonky with lots of charm. La Goupil are the Parisienne design house behind Papercute, and are also behind the “Paris” font used on these orders of service from last year. The font doesn’t need OpenType software to get the best out of it, with slight variations available simply by switching between upper and lower case. It also has a handy set of ornaments to complete the picture.

I put together a quick sample showing Papercute in use, with thanks to winsome indie-types Belle & Sebastian for the words:

Papercute is available to buy for just $7, with the ornaments priced the same.

More samples of Papercute in use are available on the La Goupil MyFonts store
